I had an image in my head that I was going to be a standout among the applicants for a visa to China.
Boy was I wrong!
A crowd of people from all nationalities lined up, filling out their applications, seeking how to fill out their application and picking up their applications.
Whey! I was not a standout after all. I was just one of the thousands of people of different shades, different races who was seeking to visit China. Talk about a lesson in assuming.
